Pioneer DJ Announces the New CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2!

REFINED, REMASTERED, REBORN:
Meet the new CDJ-2000NXS2 AND DJM-900NXS2

 

Long Beach, CA (January 12, 2016) Today, Pioneer DJ’s flagship set-up is taking a giant leap into the future with the unveiling of the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2. As a result of years of feedback from DJs of every genre, Pioneer DJ incorporated additions that deliver the highest possible sound quality, finely tuned features, and unprecedented levels of control. 

DJs want higher sound quality and Pioneer DJ has delivered with the release of these new products. The CDJ-2000NXS2 now has a 96 kHz/24-bit sound card and FLAC/Apple Lossless Audio (ALAC) support – paving the way for more producers to create music in this top quality format. Browsing and track selection are even more intuitive with the high-resolution touch screen, Qwerty keyboard and Track Filter search. The screen also packs in a multi-colored wave display, more detailed rekordbox™ information and instant access to all the most popular features. Up to four players can be controlled from one device using Pro DJ Link. The player now has two banks of four Hot Cues – eight in total. And, if that isn’t enough, you can connect the DDJ-SP1 controller to add even more Hot Cues and loops.

The DJM-900NXS2 takes mixing to another level with Pioneer DJ’s first ever 64-bit mixing processor for a more natural, warm and detailed sound. The controls are even more responsive, with a new gain structure, improved EQ and fader curves. The Sound Color FX section now has a parameter knob for even more nuanced manipulation. Plus, an independent Send/Return means you no longer have to choose between Beat FX and external FX: you can connect your choice of external FX controllers, including apps on your iPad, and layer it on top of the on-board FX. Additionally, the DJM-900NXS2 has four phono inputs, DVS support and two USB ports for easy connection to PC/Mac, making it a crucial tool versatile enough for any professional booth.

“I played a couple of tracks on the DJM-900NXS2 and I was quite astounded, it sounds like no other Pioneer DJ mixer I’ve heard,” said Andy Kayll, sound engineer at DC10. “Going up from 32-bit to 64-bit, the sound is so much more accurate and natural, you can hear it's much warmer.”

The CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 will be available in February 2016, with retail prices of $2,199.00US and $2,199.00US, respectively.

  

NEW FEATURES OF THE CDJ-2000NXS2

  1. Enhanced, next generation sound with support for FLAC/ALAC files

Every aspect of the CDJ-2000NXS2’s sound design has been fine-tuned to produce a crisper, clearer sound and support the highest quality audio formats:

  1. Expanded performance features for even greater possibilities and creativity

The CDJ-2000NXS2 builds on its predecessor’s most popular features – including Beat Sync, Slip Mode and Hot Cue Auto Load – and takes it up a gear with:

  • More detailed Phase Meter: see the track’s progression through the bar, beats and between the beats.
  • Improved beat grids: beat grids are now accurate to the microsecond, exactly matching the rekordbox beat grid for total reliability over the course of a mix.
  • Quantized Beat Jump: jump backward or forward 1 beat from the current playback position.
  1. See full rekordbox track information including NEW color-coded Memory Cues

As always, you can analyze and prepare your tracks in rekordbox and view vital information on the player’s screen, including BPM, Beat Countdown and Phase Meter. New to the CDJ-2000NXS2 are Memory Cues, which let you name a cue, e.g. ‘my breakdown’, give it a color, and then see that information on the CDJ-2000NXS2’s screen.

  1. Other features
  • Supports rekordbox dj HID control – a rekordbox dj add-on that will be available soon.
  • Three-position lever for Slip Reverse, Forward and Reverse.
